Zacher’s Photo Closing After 63 Years

After 63 years of service, Zacher’s Photo is going out of business. The store, which began in Hartford in 1946, came to West Hartford in 1955 and has been a part of the community ever since.

As Linda Zacher told us, at some point you have to stop the bleeding and let it go. The largest factor in the Zachers’ decision to close is that cameras are now digital and no longer need film.

The shop was filled with handshakes, hugs, and memories when we stopped by today. The Zachers aren’t sure where the closing leaves them personally, but they say their next adventure is just around the corner.

The last day for the store is Friday, July 31st 2009.
